Hands-on images suggest budget Lenovo Z5 complete with notch may be coming
Despite constant teasers suggesting the Lenovo Z5 series will be one of the first to boast a truly bezel-less design, the latest leak reveals what could be a very disappointing reality.

Taking a look at the images, not only does the smartphone on show include a display notch, but also a rather thick bottom chin – a far cry from recent claims. Looking at the rear, a typical dual-camera setup is featured in the top corner of the panel, with an LED flash accompanying it below. Also, as is common these days, a circular fingerprint scanner is also featured on the rear of the smartphone. Now, it’s unclear if the device in question is the actual Lenovo Z5, but it’s worth noting that recent press renders depicted a device with no display notch at all. Instead, the only bezel featured was a relatively small chin below the panel. Because of this, it appears that the smartphone shows off in these hands-on images may actually be a budget alternative that could launch alongside the regular Lenovo Z5. 

If this is the case, it’s unclear what Lenovo will choose to include inside. However, as can be seen in the images, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 appears to be featured, putting it on par in terms of power with the Moto G6 Plus, which is offered by Lenovo-owned Motorola. Additionally, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage are listed alongside Android 8.1 Oreo.

Currently, Lenovo is yet to confirm any plans for a budget alternative but considering the regular Lenovo Z5 is expected to make its official debut tomorrow in China, it's only a matter of time before the company's plans are announced. In any case, both the release date and pricing for both smartphones will most probably be confirmed at the event.

You know what, I prefer thick chin instead on notch since chin it doesn't really bother me, even thick bezel don't even bother me.

I always thought it would be too good to be true for a truly bezelless phone to be made under the Lenovo name.

I'm doubtful that is the Z5 I believe the Z5 will have a bottom camera like the mi mix 2s.
